“The beauty and wonder of nature inspires me, my family grounds me and my heart drives me to create communities where we can live more harmoniously with each other and the environment. Active travel plays a big role in this mission: why not get some exercise, get inspired by nature and architectural design, and get somewhere, all in the same trip?”
